About 6 m left of Slipper is the lowest point of
the slabs, near the track.
From the lowest point
follow a shallow groove to a small ledge.
Continue up another groove to a peg and cam
placement. Step down and left onto a flake and
ascend the awkward bulge to a small grassy
ledge. Run out up the corner crack above and
traverse right to a bolt (replacing the original
rusted peg). Move past the bolt onto short
slabs, tending right past another bolt. At the
base of a large slab with a left slanting crack,
scramble left and up through the bush to belay
at the start of the next headwall.

Climb the steep wall via
horizontal breaks (bolt) then follow easy
sloping ground to large rock belay.
